In celebration of their 60th anniversary, the Garfield Weston Foundation has launched a new one-off fund of £5million to support Capital projects to provide new or improved facilities for local communities across the UK.
The Fund will close for applications on 30th June 2018 but they wish to give charities plenty of notice so they have chance to develop their plans. You can find the guidelines on our anniversary website where there is a specific section on the fund - https://anniversary.garfieldweston.org
Here is a short summary of the fund:
